This means that the Medical University of Gdańsk is still the leading medical school in Poland, sharing the honorable first place with the Collegium Medicum of the Jagiellonian University.
The MUG did equally well in the list of evaluated criteria. It was ranked 2nd in terms of the number of scientific publications, 5th in the field of scientific effectiveness, measured, among others, by the number of citations and took 7th place in the scientific potential.category.

The high position in the ranking of categorizations of individual departments in external parametric evaluation confirms the MUG’s leading role in the field of scientific and research activity. This is itself is a huge success.
